THE Met Office has issued a weather warning for Bradford as the weekend approaches.

A yellow warning has been put in place for the city by the national weather service on Saturday (November 27).

There is potential for a spell of very windy weather which could disrupt transport, damage buildings and cause power cuts. 

The warning is in place from midnight (12am) on the Saturday morning until 6pm in the evening, but that could change.

Most of the UK has been issued with the same warning, other than the south-east tip of the country, which includes the likes of London, Chelmsford, Ipswich, Canterbury and Brighton.

The alert first begins on Friday lunchtime (12pm) in Scotland, Northern Ireland and parts of Cumbria.

The severe weather conditions in Bradford are expected to cause the following issues: 

  • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
  • There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
  • There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
